In which I feel so ridiculously positive that I even make myself gag.

This is definitely weird. Here it is a chilly February morning and I have some kind of strange "joie de vivre" thing going on. Why? I have no idea. Sure I have already had my 3 cups of coffee for the day before 9 am and I am a little giddy from lack of sleep due to my dear wee octopus daughter crawling into bed with me at annoying-o'clock but shouldn't that just make me feel moody? (And shouldn't poorly written run-on sentences make me a bit cranky too?) Where has all this positive energy come from?

When in doubt, analyze the heck out of it to suffocate any chance of it happening again. Here are the theories:

1. Someone slipped something into my PB and H toast this morning.
2. Kids were very cooperative and I think I didn't hear the word "no" once this morning.
3. I was blog-surfing before breakfast and came across this page which made me shift my perspective on my super Aspie kid.
4. The sun is shining and it isn't -30c and for some reason I want to spend time outside.
5. The planets have aligned in some unusual way and my cat is purring next to me.

Whatever. I'm going to lace up my skates and hit the canal today, all by myself, just for fun and at my own pace, before the planets shift and it all comes crashing down again.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I'm also feeling strangely positive these days. It's freaking me out.

    Have a great skate, and a great day!

  2. Well clearly I need a serious Pam infusion. And to read more clearly, since I spent a moment wondering how aligned plants were helping your mood. I'm planning a night skate with my husband, since I pretty much still need someone to hold my hand. Hope yours was awesome.

  3. so is the positively positive psitiveness still gracing your mood? hope it was a wonderful skate. it's another beautiful day today, hope you get to enjoy it!

  4. You hit the canal all alone? Oh wow: Bliss! I hope it was wonderful! I think that sunny warm weather we recently had did a happy number on me too. Let spring be upon us! Please!
